Literacy and Language Diversity book cover Literacy and Language Diversity in the United States, 2nd Edition

Terrence G. Wiley

In this revised and updated edition, the author takes a fresh look at the issues related to the differences between the literacy performance and educational achievement of language minorities and native speakers of English in this country and the social and educational policy debates that surround literacy in the 21st century. Based on recent national data, the book examines language diversity in the United States; outlines what we know about the development of English literacy, native language literacy, and literacy in two languages; and explores how to make informed national policy decisions. Literacy and Language Diversity is written for linguists, scholars, policymakers, educators, and students in teacher preparation programs. 2005.
